Accepdance

Odd Embrace Performance Group

‘Accepdance’ is a double bill of live performance by Amit Noy and Otto Kosok, recipients of the 2021 Toi Pōneke Dance Residency. In two starkly contrasting new works, an intergenerational family shares the stage with a three-metre tall creature. ‘Accepdance’ is an exploration of love, struggle, and their odd embrace.

The Creature is a new dance-theatre work by Otto Kosok devised around the figure of a three-metre tall abstract puppet. Unease and agitation are embodied by the Creature and a cast of four performers, in an interdisciplinary physical fantasia of our complex internal lives.

“Bones crack, they creak, in midnight’s cold embrace. Each heavy breath births a silent hurricane.”

Through an experimental marriage of text, movement, puppeteering, and sound, The Creature traverses through the most complicated landscape we know: the human mind.

Created by Amit Noy in collaboration with his family, Love is Everything moves to embody social life. An economist, a perinatal mental health educator, a dancer, and a schoolgirl come together in cross-generational play. They ask:
What is a dancer, what are we doing, why are you watching it? What’s excellence, how can we be good?
Love is Everything incorporates dance, text, and film to mine the richly textured history of a family. We move together to study our body-histories, our stories, our laughter, and our love.
Ponder the internal with The Creature, and improvise life in Love is Everything. Join us as we explore what it means to be human, in the odd embrace that is ‘Accepdance’.
